Many residents and friends of the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) enjoyed the traditional Christmas Concert of the park last Tuesday, December 18, at the auditorium. The PRBB Choir, dressed with whitecoats and colourful scarfs, sang several Gospels to set the mood and they did a great performance.
Coming up next, the PRBB Orchestra presented well-arranged pieces by Dvorak, Grieg and the catchy melody of the Mackie Messer song by Kurt Weill.
The concert ended with the peaceful Amazing Grace played by both the choir and the orchestra and also “La Bohème” as a final tribute to Charles Aznavour. Singers, musicians and the directors Borja Mascaró and Oscar Salvador received a well-deserved applause.
Any PRBB resident can join the Choir. They don’t need to have musical knowledge or previous experience, just the desire to sing! The Choir rehearses weekly on Thursdays from 18:00 to 20:00h at the Ramon y Cajal room and the director is Òscar Salvador.
The PRBB Orchestra was founded in March 2015 and has been improving ever since. At present there are three rehearsals per month, usually on Wednesdays 13:30-15:00h. They play a mixed repertoire of classical and popular music and the pieces are usually transcribed and adapted to the different levels of the musicians. The director is Borja Mascaró, and he is looking forward to receiving further PRBB residents who want to join the orchestra!
